Notes from the August 13th Session

TOPIC Books
Alan Raul opened the meeting with a collage of images shot at the Phoenix Bookstore. Alan captured images of books from many different genres and then built a slide show from them using the software program, Proshow Gold

John Waller followed with shots of texts offered at the Santa Maria Public Library.

Ralph Sutter showed messages conveyed either by text or by visual images from his recent travels.

Kaye Raul shared scenes featuring the library of her mother

Bob Styerwalt displayed some of the books found in his personal library. The categories included volumes on travel, history, religion, classics, reference materials and technical volumes. Like Alan and Ralph, Bob used Proshow Gold to present his images.

Following the display of images, Kaye shared an article that predicted how new technologies would reshape our lives, rendering obsolete many current devices and behaviors. This resulted in lengthy conversations, so much so that we chose Obsolescence as the focus topic for the September meeting
